Gent win group despite defeat in Cyprus

Speeldag 5 - UEFA Conference League groep B - 25-11-2021 21:00 u

On Matchday 5 of the UEFA Conference League, the Buffalos secured top spot in Group B. Playing away at Anorthosis Famagusta, Gent went behind to a magnificent goal from Christodopoulos – who was lucky to be still on the field after an elbow just moments before. The Cypriots defended their lead stoutly, making life hard for the Buffalos, and the visitors could not find an equaliser in the second half. So it was a 1-0 defeat on the night, but Gent could still celebrate winning the group thanks to FK Partizan's loss to Flora Tallinn, and are now through to the Round of 16 in March.
